Edgars - a Memory of Dunscore.

My grandmother, Agnes Moffat Edgar was born in 1873 at Mop Cottage. I would like to know where the cottage is located. Her father and grandfather, William Charteris Edgar and John Edgar, have headstones in Dunscore Churchyard. John Edgar was a Master Blacksmith in Dunscore, his wife was Marrion Chateris and they had 7 son and daughters. My grandmothers great grandfather, James Edgar, married Susan Briggs - headstone at the church - they had 4 sons. I would like to hear any information about the Edgars, Chateris and Briggs. derekwbdickson@yahoo.co.uk
